The Mountain Monster Rides
The Mountain Monster is actually 3 separate ride experiences. The Monster Drop plunges down 200 feet for a stomach-dropping ride like no other. Oh, and did we mention that you’re secured with a lab belt but have nothing to hold onto? Now that’s what we call an exhilarating adventure! The Monster Launch blasts you 170 feet in the air where you’ll feel all the negative G’s. Finally, the Monster Swing is the star of the show– a massive swing you won’t find anywhere else!
